Rest in peace is a phrase we usually hear when someone has died. But we don’t have to die to rest in peace.
We can rest in the peace of God right here and right now. Yes, right smack dab in the chaos and turmoil of the world around us.
All we have to do is stop, close our eyes and notice our breath going in and out. As we watch our thoughts going past without grabbing hold of them we will feel our mind start to settle. As we continue we will begin to find ourselves resting in the peace of God.
It’t that easy. The hard part is letting go. Letting go of thoughts. Letting go of the energy of drama and struggle.
Taking the time to just rest in the Presence is not being lazy, selfish or non-productive. It is the most important time we can spend. and is not something to put off until we die.
So today, I say to all of us still among the living…. rest in peace.
“First the energy of God descends upon the Earth, then it pretends whatever it wants to be, then it ascends back to its source. You are God pretending to be whatever you are right now. Do you understand what this means? You have allowed yourself to descend, but by pretending to be less than what you are, you have not ascended back God.”—Thomas (Indigo Child)
Let’s Talk About It
We are talking about Holy Ground this month in The Espirational Community on Facebook. While due to the founders of this site’s personal backgrounds this is a Christ based Website this site and The Espirational Community is a place for people of all faiths to gather, discuss and praise the God of us all. Please consider this your invitation to join our community and participate in the discussion of this timely topic.
“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.”
